The location was great, just a short stroll to the heart of the...

The room we stayed in at the Bowman's B and B was nicely situated at the front of the building, with a pleasant view through a bay window, through trees, of a hospital park. We were not disturbed by the rumble of trains behind the wall on the other side of the road: the trains were slow speed on a...

Modern en-suite facilities, fluffy towels, clean room. A warm welcome from a lovely lady. Just wish I had stayed for breakfast as the other guests told me how good it was! I look forward to my next visit.

Debra was incredibly nice to us when we first met her and every morning during breakfast, offering recommendations for places to eat and things to see in York. As for...
